The tables entitled Odyssey and Kalokagathos represent the dialogue between the aesthetics of ancient Greece and the aesthetics of Slovene architect Jože Plečnik’s work. I view him as the archetype of a timeless personality, an artist and a visionary who, in his late oeuvres, significantly reflected upon various classical influences.

The presented coffee tables are part of the ECLECTICISM collection, in which I pursue the relation between history and the present. Every piece from the collection is loosely inspired by a particular style or a movement from the past, and simultaneously, refers to a singular personality closely linked with the given era.

Every object is the unique original.
Made in Czech Republic.
